Note that a typical degrading effect might be the very common situation
where a cookie is used to frequency cap at 1 time a pop-up or full page ad
takeover.  A site might allow its third party adserver to trigger a full
page ad or pop up ad but insist that it happen only the first time an
individual visits the site or no more than once a week.  Yes, the site could
work around and track in first party context, but they have outsourced all
their adserving as most sites have.   I can think of other examples where a
third party cookie may be used for the individuals benefit - and where site
work arounds are possible, but could easily be ignored by the site,
especially if a small minority of users are affected.

data collection and use. It's not the role of the standard to require
businesses to require or suggest broad changes to a company's business
practices (such as giving away content and services for free) that aren't
directly related to implementation of the standard and handling of the
relevant data.


Seconded.
That said, it is useful non normative comment for implementers.
